Catching Up On The Dusty, Long-Overdue Project
We've been building this Poison Spyder Customs Bruiser chassis for five years now. Although if we were actually working on it the whole time we'd be done with it by now. Truth is, in that time we've been sidetracked by two girlfriends, a home purchase, a Panel Wagon, two J-truck builds, a flatfender rat rod, a JK, and a 2.5-ton military truck. But that's beside the point. We decided to make it our summer goal to get the Juggy running and ready to hit the trail this winter.
Our buddies now refer to the Jeep buggy project as the Time Bandit. Not only because it has taken so long to build, but because many of the parts on it and ideas are outdated. That's all right; we'll simply tell people we wanted a retro Jeep buggy. Bad news is when you take this long to build something you find better ways and come up with new ideas that need to be implemented in place of the old stuff. In our case, this resulted in things like three completely different steering column buildups. Anyway, here's where we are on the Juggy now.
